Abstract

An error was made in the calculation of the photonic crystal mode volume. Fixing this error increases our mode volumes by a factor of two and makes our claim of highest Q/V invalid.

], we state that the mode volume of the 1D photonic crystal nanobeam cavities is 0.27(λ/n)3. This value appears in the caption for Fig. 1, in the last paragraph of section 4 and in the conclusion. Recently, it was discovered that a factor of two error was made in the calculation of cavity mode volume. This error results in an increase in the mode volume of these cavities to 0.54(λ/n)3.

We make the claim in the last paragraph of the introduction, at the end of section 4 and in the conclusion that we have observed the highest Q/V ratio as of the date of publication. Using this new mode volume, and our reported highest Q of 75,000, our calculated Q/V ratio becomes 139,000. This value is no longer larger than the Q/V ratio of 173,000 reported by the group of De La Rue [2
